Default FOB Keyless enter

We have 2 fobs for an 05 Ion 2. My remote has always worked until it just quit one day. My wife's still works. I took them to AutoZone and tested to make sure the battery was still good, and everything worked fine on both. I bought a new battery just in case it might be that but no luck.

I found out that the Ion 2 has to use Tech 2 to program the remote, which would require me to go into the dealer. I am worried that if I bring it in and it ends up being something else then I will have to pay... Has anyone else experienced anything similar and have a solution?
Let me know. Thanks!

You have 1 fob that everything operates normal, so everything other than then the bad fob is ok.
dealer can add a new remotes.
When adding a new remote it is the BCM that is being programmed to except the new remote. The new remote is not programmed and their fore can not loose the program.

Bern,

"When adding a new remote it is the BCM that is being programmed to except the new remote. The new remote is not programmed and their fore can not loose the program."

What is BCM?

Can you explain more? I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to say.

Any way I can repair the remote?

Body control module. It controls among other things the lights, ignition and security system, rke.the rke program must have the new remote added to it before it will work so anybody with an ion remote can't walk by your car and get in it.

I went to the dealer today, they reprogrammed my FOB, so now it's working again. They said they don't know why it lost its memory or something, not suppose to happen. So far it is working well. Hope it lasts!
